Baylor in Greece and Turkey

Hello friends,

This year in the study abroad program Baylor in Greece and Turkey, we will be offering a range of courses. Particularly of interest will be the BIC courses: Social World 1, Biblical Heritage, and Capstone.  If you are interested, applications are now open and can be accessed at the link below.

Enclosed is a copy of the trip brochure and a list of all the courses that are being offered this year.  We’re very excited to be including the Italian island of Sicily on this year’s tour.  In the Ancient world, Sicily was a part of “Greater Greece,” and there were numerous Greek colonies and cities established there.  Sicily also plays an important role during the medieval period since it was the cross-roads of the Mediterranean world where French, Latin, Arab, and Byzantine (Greek) cultures all intersected.

The program fee will be $4,250.  That includes all lodging, breakfast and dinner each day, transportation within and between countries, entrance fees, Turkish visa, international health insurance for the duration of the trip, and private guides in each of our countries.  That does not include transatlantic airfare to Athens and from Istanbul, Baylor tuition, lunches, and personal expenses.

Summer Program in DC

Summer Fellowship for Religion and Social Life

Summer 2023

A summer intensive for Baylor students to explore the social benefits of religious communities, while undergoing intentional spiritual formation as well as professional development for a life of service and leadership.

The program will prioritize rising juniors and seniors

  • Spend 8 weeks in Washington D.C.

  • Interdisciplinary coursework on topics related to religious practices and their social impact
  • Full-time internships at the intersection of religion and politics

Coursework May Include:

• Religion and Society: What is religion, and what should its relationship be to other realms of life? How should religious practices inform other realms of life, including politics, business, social entrepreneurship, and so on? Students will think theoretically here about how religion should structure our understanding of the world.

• Religion and American History: What role did religion play in the American founding? How have diverse religious communities contributed to America’s social fabric? How have religion and race intersected in the formation of American public life?

• Religion and the Common Good: Does religion make a positive difference for American society? How has religious commitments affected America’s prisons, marriage and families, public health, etc.? In this section students would think empirically about religion’s effects on American society.

• The Constitution and Religious Freedom: What is the scope of religious freedom? How have religious liberties been interpreted by the Court throughout American history? What are the differences between corporate and individual religious liberties, and how should we navigate the conflict between religious liberties and other putative rights?
